I'm thinking of going from a nicely OC'd and water cooled 5870 to GTX 480. Just dont know if its worth it.
The drivers are better, they use way more power but that's a non issue with me, they're the hottest cards I've owed....but not much more than my old 285's.
I was really surprised at the noise level, its not bad at all...prolly the same as the 5870s under load.
You'll be able to get good OC's being on water.
